We’ve all heard about the 7 deadly sins before, and while most of us try to be absolute angels and err on the side of caution, we’re committing gluttony more often than we realize.
Those late nights of post-dinner snacking and succumbing to ice-cream cravings are blatant acts of gluttony, and for all who have sinned…penance will be paid.
This said penance comes in the form of weight gain… and the death of your dream weight and figure.

The morning after a late-night Netflix-fuelled binge brings about a tinge of regret and the impertinent need for detoxification. The urge to purge is real, as a night of binge-eating or drinking brings about bloating, fatigue, weight gain, and in the long run, a broken-down metabolic system.
You need to get the toxins out of your system, pronto.

Hydration is an integral cog in the weight-busting wheel. Have yourself a nice big glass of plain water upon waking up to kick start the digestive tract into detoxification mode.
Plain water aside, there are a host of equally efficient fluids that can help in the removal of toxins in your body. Lemons are known to be rich in antioxidants and Vitamin C and greatly aids in digestion.
Detoxification teas like lemongrass, ginger, and milk thistle even contain properties that sustain and enhance the health of your liver, the main “port of authority” for the outflow of toxins from your body.
Supercharged stand-ins for water like the Purification 1-Day Cleanse supplement will add a potent twist to your hydration schedule throughout the day, and enhance the healing process of your body.
Chock full of nourishing herbs that stimulate your detoxification pathways and promote toxin elimination, this supplement also cleanses the blood and fortifies your immune system. Just add the 4-ounce potion into a gallon of water and drink it throughout the day.
What Goes In, Must Come Out
Food containing fiber, protein, and iron rank high on the recommended list because they greatly aid in your bowel movement, which is a much-needed process if you want the poison
You can find an extensive list of recommended food items here.
Binge-eating and drinking can also mar the efficiency of your digestive system and in turn cause irregular bowel movement. If you feel “fat” or bloated all the time, you’re probably suffering from indigestion – and in turn, weight gain(!).
Bowel regulators like the Daily Cleanse consist of 17 of nature’s most powerful digestion-optimizing herbs, designed to gently support the liver and kidney in relieving your body of toxins faster, and reduce gas, bloating, and digestive upset along the way.
Jab the Flab
If all of these detoxification measures still fail you, and you still find yourself losing the battle of the bulge and the temptation of sinful indulgence, you may want to shake things up a little with the latest in weight loss technology: a self-injectable weight-loss pen!
Aptly named the Skinny Jab, this portable device contains a replica of a hormone our body produces that regulates our appetite and makes us feel full, known as the Glucagon-Like-Peptide (GLP-1).
A tiny prick of this injectable pen doubles the presence of this hormone in your system, effectively killing any form of craving you might have at any point of the day where you might feel like you run the risk of overeating.
Finally, no penance to be paid for the sin of gluttony!
